A general science course on Physics and the Arts will being offered during Winter Term 2012. The course meets the general education requirements for a three-hour non-lab based science course.
The class explores analysis of the physics of light and sound, and how our eyes and ears detect them. Understanding the physics of light and sound will increase appreciation for works of art and music, and may even stimulate student artists and musicians to deepen their knowledge of their media and of how people interface with them. Ultimately, understanding the physics of what they do may improve their art and music.
Students will only be required to do simple computations, including fractions, and very elementary high school algebra.
Prerequisite: None required.
Time: 9 a.m. to Noon, MTWThF
